“Concise Review Great poolside food, drinks, & staff ----- Longer Review We have visited Marriott’s Shadow Ridge in Palm Desert since 2002, and afternoons at the pool, with food and drinks from Chuckwalla Bar & Grill, are a bit part of every trip. One of my all time favorite photos is from a nice afternoon, poolside, several years ago when the kids were little... it was one of our most fun and peaceful afternoons as a family anywhere... the photos is of our daughter, asleep on my wonderful wife, my wonderful wife smiling at me, and our son was on the chair in between us, smiling as he was drinking a strawberry smoothie from Chuckwalla’s... such a blessing. We visited Southern California - Palm Desert, Yucaipa, and Malibu - for Spring Break 2021. This trip we had more activities off-property than usual, so we only got one nice long afternoon at the pool, and RebekahM made it a little extra special. The sun, the water, fun in the pool... and smoothies... such a joy. Before I had a chance to think about it, smoothies were en route from Chuckwalla... strawberry, banana, and alcohol-free pina colada. Rebekah delivered them to us with a big smile and infectiously positive attitude. Rebekah turned the fun up a notch with her dancing and smiling and laughing as she took our orders and delivered to the families around the pool... everyone was extra happy when she was around. Thank you, Rebekah and Chuckwalla, for another memorable trip! ----- ----- -----“

“The Daily Grill offers a variety of dishes, including a Trout Almondine and a steak salad, as well as a meatloaf with mashed potatoes and a Caesar salad. The service, provided by Stella, is described as great, and the ambiance is comfortable and casual with style. However, there were issues with the quality and cooking of a roast beef dish. Vegetarian options could be improved.“

“Jillian's is a popular local restaurant, known for its special occasion dining and impeccable service. The food offerings are generally good, with the halibut special being a standout option. However, some guests may find the prices to be on the higher side. The wine selection, particularly the Cabernets, is somewhat limited with only two options from California. The restaurant's atmosphere is enhanced by elements such as live music and a front courtyard, contributing to an overall pleasant experience. It is worth noting that while the waitstaff is commendable, there have been instances where the hostess' behavior may not meet expectations.“
